Thank you for this wonderful review of what seems like a fascinating text. I might also direct readers interested in the histories of education, citizenship, empire and visuality to Katie Day Good's new book, "Bring the World to the Child Technologies of Global Citizenship in American Education" (MIT Press, 2020) and my book, "Projecting Citizenship: Photography and Belonging in the British Empire" (Penn State University Press, 2019), both of which address the role of lantern slide lectures in civic instruction and imperial propaganda in the 20th century.
